I love that knitting can create such gorgeous textures. And when I can find multiple textures that combine so effortlessly, it's a great thing!
This eternity scarf's generous width allows you to experience knitting three different textured stitch patterns that will then display beautifully when worn.
It starts with a Leaf lace panel that you work from end to end. Stitches are picked up along one of the long edges to work a very simple textured stitch as the middle layer. A few rows of Seed stitch as the top layer combats any curling and gives the scarf a neat finish.
Worked up in a soft (yet sturdy!) alpaca wool blend in a neutral color, this scarf is sure to be a fabulous, timeless, wear-with-everything accessory.
3/16/15: Small typo on p. 3: For Lace Panel, it should say Rep Row 1-10 (not -12) for the patt rep. New pdf can be downloaded through your store account.

I love this pattern. It came together beautifully. I made it in a "shades of gray, black and white" wool, cotton blend. The first tier looks like feathers. I plan on making more for Christmas gifts. My daughter-in-law made off with this one, so I need to try to make one for myself.
